Dartmouth Craft Store Joins the Self-Checkout Train
Although self-checkout shopping is far from revolutionary, it seems more stores are making room for the technology.
At Michaels, the arts-and-crafts store in Dartmouth, clerk-less checkout stands are a prominent fixture by the exit.
For avid Michaels shoppers, this is a game-changer.
Back in October, Michaels stores across Massachusetts and New England began ripping out cash registers and replacing them with self-checkout booths.
This can be a touchy subject for some who prefer the friendly face of an employee.
For others, self-checkout has its perks.
"I was surprised to see the self-checkouts, but it came to good use," Dartmouth native and loyal Michaels customer Jill Lemieux said. "I only had a couple of items so instead of waiting in a line that was six or seven people deep, I was able to check out quickly and be on my way. I was short on time and I found it to be very convenient."
